Yes, these are good points, and that's why I have pushed an update to
the manual. Please have a look at the "The defsystem grammar" ASDF
manual page here:
Only the first four entries have changed.
Please also have a look at the subsections immediately below: 6.3.1,
6.3.2, and 6.3.3.
I would welcome any comments you (or anyone receiving this message --
the more the merrier!) have. The previous discussion was not as clear
as it should have been.
The manual could definitely use an extensive overhaul, but this band-aid
is well better than nothing.
